work-in-process presentation of new work to premiere at Live Arts spring 2013
As part of her appointment as New York Live Arts' 2011-2013 Resident Commissioned Artist , Yasuko Yokoshi will create a new dance-theater work that continues her in-depth research of the parallel aesthetics of traditional and contemporary forms and the authenticity and ownership of culture. Working with her long-time collaborator Masumi Seyama, successor of Kabuki master Kanjyuro Fujima VI, BELL will reimagine the classical Japanese dance Kyoganoko Musume-Dojyoji (A Woman and a Bell at the Dojyoji Temple), reputed to be the most important and difficult work in the Kabuki theater repertoire.
